So last night my DH and I were out to dinner and we were discussing and planning our summer for this year. We always include the upcoming Airshow into our plans. That is our favorite summer activity. Anyway, while discussing the airshow we got to reminiscing about last years airshow and how we got to meet Gary Sinise icon_surprised.gif . We didn't even know he was there until we heard it on the loud speaker. We took off running like a couple of kids running toward a candy store. We got to where he was and walked in front of about 200 cameras so we could meet him and shake his hand. All the cameras must have got a picture of the back of our heads but we didn't care about that. We were so excited. We were on cloud 9 all day. It was deffinately the highlight of the whole airshow I tell you.

So this morning I woke up still thinking about that and I was wondering who my CC friends would like to meet if they had a chance. If you could meet any celebrity in the whole world, who would it be or if you have already met some celebrities, who were they? Just curious that's all. Thought maybe it would be a fun thread. Talk to ya'll later. thumbs_up.gif

I would LOVE to meet Gary Sinise! One of my all-time favorite actors. I would also love to meet Sandra Bullock. She's a great actress and a class act.

On the non-actor side, I'd love to meet Dean Koontz and Patricia Cornwell, two of my fav authors.

Tis is cool, I would love to meet Christopher Lambert or Johnny Deep as far as actors go. My older brother has met Lee Greenwood and Porter Wagoner, he worked for Opryland one season and had the luck of meeting them.

Shelle, I have met Patricia Cornwell. She was a speaker here in town one day and hubby surprised me with tickets to go! LUV her books!

Used to be real involved in politics so I've met a number of them including Newt Gingrich and Dan Quayle, and I can show you the picture of me and him together to prove it! I was so excited that I gave him a big hug and hubby says, "Debi, the Secret Service really did take one step forward when you threw yourself at the Vice President!" icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif I brought his book to get his autograph and was told "The Vice President won't have time for autographs."

Uh .... *MY* book is autographed! icon_rolleyes.gif

would love to meet Oprah ... not because of her celebrity, but because of her talent as a businesswoman. Same with Gene Simmons ... not because he was/is a rock star but because of his business genius.

And to spend a day with Donald Trump to pick his brain. Wow! The ultimate high.

You all may find this odd but I don't dream about meeting/seeing any "celebrities". I am not a "star struck" person by any means. I am more impressed by people who have done something in the world but I still don't care about just seeing them. That doesn't mean I don't enjoy their entertainment, like Ellen, shes halarious (don't care for Oprah as a entertainer). If I could talk with someone seriously I guess I'd like to meet the Dali Lama and the one guy that I could find myself salivating over if I were younger would be Mario Lopez.

I wouldn't walk across the street to see the president. Any of them, and they have visited my town. My SO is always bugged with me because he likes concerts and seeing people "live" and I could care less. I know it's odd it's just that I am not in awe of people, or imidated by them, I TRULY believe everyone is just as important as the next person and I wouldn't treat any celebrity any different than I'd treat my neighbor, that includes the Dali Lama. That's just me.

Indydebi I can just imagine what the secret service guys faces looked like when you plunged in to hug the Vice President. They were probly thinking "who does this woman think she is"? That is too funny! Thanx for sharing that story. thumbs_up.gif

I always wanted to meet Waylon Jennings and Johnny Cash/June Carter-Cash. Never had the opportunity although saw them in concert on more than one occasion. I met Bob Crain (Hogan's Heros) at Six Flags/FT.Worth 35 years ago. Met Bill Clinton/Hillary when he was our govenor, and met Roger Clinton once in a bar in 1985 icon_lol.gificon_lol.gif (not that he is really a celeberity). I don't know if any of you listen to country music but Justin Moore (Small Town USA and Backwoods) is my brother-in-laws nephew. So, I've known him all of his life. His video to Small Town USA was filmed 5 miles from my house.

Oh I am so with you on that one!

Now, instead of Cruise, if it was Sean Connery, I might have to pause for a second to decide! icon_rolleyes.gificon_biggrin.gif

I agree. Tom is just strange, or is it only me that thinks so?

Where I live, a lot of western movies have been shot here so I have met quite a few actors: Val Kilmer, Charlton Heston, John Wayne, Kurt Russell (he's got the bluest eyes), Sam Elliot(I told him he was a tall drink of beautiful water), Michael Landon( he would stop by our restaurant a lot), Kevin Costner, Whoopi Goldberg, a few others and Barbra Streisand. She came and ate at our restaurant. She was by far the worst! I couldn't stand her.

She isn't living anymore, but I would have loved to meet Julia Child.

What is it about that man...I think the older he gets, the better.
(And, I must admit this, I named my son after him!)

Mmmmmmmmm. Sam Elliot. There's another one that just gets better and better.

I love the fact that he's tall! Most of the other ones were wearing higher-heeled boots and almost were eye level with me. I'm only 5' 9 1/2" so it was nice to look up at him. And his voice is just beautiful, among other things!

I would LOVE to have a chat with Jon Bon Jovi. I would also like to meet Josh Holloway (the guy who plays Sawyer on Lost).

I've met Paula Deen & Emeril Lagasse.

Well, now, as a kid I was on an Easter Seals telethon, it was so exciting for a 7 year old, going to the CBS studio in NYC and all, and I got to give Peter Falk (Columbo) a donation check.

And I met and chatted with Emeril Lagasse at a book signing. You were permitted to stand behind him at the signing table to have your picture taken, well, with the boxes upon boxes of books, I couldn't navigate my wheelchair behind him, he was getting frustrated with B&N staff, so he finally got up and stood next to me for the pic! He didn't have to do that but he did and I found out he stayed 2 hours past the end time.

I so agree with what you just said (except meeting Ellen...I don't care for her). A co-worker and I were having a similar conversation at work about meeting someone famous since someone famous will be coming to our store this week. I view celebs as people...nothing more. They may be well-known and have more money than I but that DOES NOT make them better...even though many think they are. I especially agree with what you said about being more impressed by someone who has done something in the world to make it a better place for EVERYONE...rather than just being famous for singing, acting, being wealthy....etc. Many people view President Obama as a socialist but I believe that he falls into this category...trying to make the world a better place for everyone...I understand his vision (I know that this comment is opening up a can of worms for some but I just have to voice my opinion). Meeting the Dali Lama does sound interesting, though.

I don't worship people or money...just God. Plain and simple.

great thread!!
i have met quite a few famous people. i LOVE going to concerts and have been really lucky to meet some of my favorite bands. no im not a groupy or did any shady things. alot of it is being in the right place at the right time.
but the one person who i wish i could meet is elvis. not because of the whole sex symbol thing, but would have love to talked to him about his life. country boy - to rock icon.
my kids pedi - did meet him at graceland. he and he business partner at the time (a real famous owner of a major movie studio) were concert promoters years ago. and were promoting one of his last concerts. i love hearing his stories. my kids pedi then went into medical school and his friend stayed in the entertainment business. he gets to go to alot of big hollywood premiers etc. i think thats pretty cool.
